Democratic National Committee
Cozy relationships will only take you so far, as was proven when DNC Chairman Tom Pérez got caught trying to pull a fast one on Univision's weekly Al Punto talker.
The editorial board of the Wall Street Journal called on Thursday, October 26, for Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Counsel Robert Mueller to step down from his role in investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. “It is no slur against Mr. Mueller’s integrity to say that he lacks the 'critical distance' to conduct a credible probe of the bureau he ran for a dozen years,” the Journal’s editorial board wrote. “He could best serve the country by resigning to prevent further political turmoil over that conflict of interest.”
Almost from the moment that Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president in 2015, we have been hearing a familiar cacophony from the mainstream media: "The Republicans are in disarray." Even after Trump won the presidency despite "no path to 270" the MSM has maintained that familiar refrain until the present time. Well, in contrast to that constant theme from the MSM, today's Vanity Fair has suddenly noticed that it is the Democrats who are in a state of collapse.
Since Imran Awan's arrest in late July, the Daily Caller has published roughly two dozen follow-up stories on various aspects of the scandal involving the longtime rogue Democrat IT staffer and his inexplicably enriched family members. The Associated Press and the New York Times have, from all appearances, published nothing since July 28.
In a interview with Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez during Tuesday’s 10 a.m. ET hour, MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson pressed the party leader on whether Democrats should move even farther to the left: “There’s been a lot of discussion about how the DNC is working on a message of unity when there is a wing of the party that wants to see a more forceful move to the left. How do you reconcile that?”
Many in the media race to label conservatives fighting for the unborn as “extreme.” But when it comes time to report on liberals pushing for taxpayer-funded abortion or Democrat-mandated abortion support, the media refrain from name-calling and, oftentimes, from covering the story at all.
Searches at the Associated Press's main national site and at the New York Times indicate that the last newsworthy thing new Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez did was to demand, i.e., not "ask for," as the AP sanitized it, "resignation letters from all DNC (Democratic National Committee) staffers." This means that neither outlet considers Perez's repeated profanity-laced rants last week that Donald Trump "didn’t win this election” newsworthy.
If you asked a hundred conservatives to name the de facto flagship publication of American liberalism, The New York Times probably would get more mentions than any other. Still, it hasn’t been hard to find lefties upset with the paper about matters such as its supposed longstanding hostility toward Bill and Hillary Clinton. How the Times, especially its coverage of the e-mail story, may have made Hillary’s defeat more likely has been a post-election buzz topic on the left. Liberal strategist Jamison Foser, whose affiliations have included the Democratic National Committee and, currently, the Tom Steyer-led NextGen Climate, crystallized the lefty disgruntlement with the Times in a tweetstorm in response to a fellow liberal who argued that “we have to support the NYTimes right now more than ever.”
CNN parted ways with commentator and Interim Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile Monday, as yet another batch of damaging e-mails was released by WikiLeaks. According to the e-mails Brazile told Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Chair, John Podesta, that she sometimes acquired access to debate questions and that she’ll “send a few more.” Both CBS and NBC covered to the developing controversy, while ABC kept it off the air. It’s not surprising since she is also one of their commentators and they still have her on leave.
On Monday’s Situation Room, CNN host Wolf Blitzer brushed aside the latest bombshell Project Veritas videos showing liberal operatives planning to instigate violence at Donald Trump rallies simply because “we haven't confirmed those videos” are real before cornering the Republican National’s Sean Spicer over reporters being harassed at Trump events.
The “Big Three” networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) continued their marathon of covering up Democratic scandals and controversies, Monday, by failing to report the prison sentencing of a former Democratic Party “rising star” during their evening broadcasts. “A judge sentenced former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane on Monday to 10 to 23 months in prison for committing multiple felonies stemming from a politically motivated act of retribution,” reported CNN’s Max Blau.
During Thursday's edition of the Cable News Network's weeknight Amanpour program, liberal host Christiane Amanpour asked guest Oliver Stone what the well-known film director, screenwriter and producer thought regarding the inclusion of Russia into this year's presidential election.
Stone -- who has generated controversial movies ranging from Midnight Express to the upcoming Snowden “biopic” of the man who released classified documents in 2013 -- called the accusation of Russians hacking into the Democratic National Committee “a great fiction” that disguises “what's really going on.”
